    I'm not sure I have the same talent for smooth segues. But I do make a mean stale latte.

    Of course not, although the breadth of the discussion does allow for some sarcastic comments.

    (Which of course is highly encouraged.)

    It may be a good idea to take a breath first, since I sometimes regret letting the sarcasm fly.

    That is probably sage advice, although a little sarcasm here and there is probably what keeps the thread going.

    Appreciation of sarcasm does betray a healthy sense of humor.

    I would rate it as my favorite thread. (And not just because I started it.)
